Tikka T1X



Log in to see fewer ads
Took about 4 months for my dealer to get 1 in,I installed an Elay precision trigger spring ,a Bushnell Forge 3x18 scope ,a victor company cheek riser,and a DIP picatinny rail..
1st impression ,the bolt is stiff not like my T3 at all ,the trigger is good out of the box ,but the 9$ spring makes it better ,the ejector is the crappy part ,its a wire spring setup and 95% of the time it ejects ,maybe it will break in ?
I removed the spacer block under the barrel from the stock,the forend is really narrow for a benchrest,but you can buy a wider 1 to slip over the stock

It seems to like cci standard ammo the best ,followed by Norma tac ,and it was shooting average of 1" in at 100yds for me,but I only shoot 3 ,5 shot groups at 100 yds.

That's a group to be proud of. Hope you get the ejector sorted out.

That is quite good! Try some midrange ammo, or even some upscale stuff. It just might wander into being a one-holer. Mine did.

I would buy a case of that lot number if my rifle shot it that well.

Good shooting!

Yessir, mines the exact same way with cci sv, tried numerous ammunition with only 3 breaking sub moa, cci sv edged them both out averaging under 1moa at 100 with a best of the day at .551 from a old orange box, new blue box was only slightly behind bust still averaging in the .85 range edging out green tag. Awesome shooting, and an awesome rifle!

I wish you guys would stop posting these group results from the T1x rifles as every time I see these posts I want one more and more "AND" I prefer wood and blue over synthetic.

I love my CZ and 10/22 nicely stocked .22's but everything I see and read indicates this T1x is a shooter right out of the box.

Oh well, I purchased a Remington 1100 Competition Synthetic for Sporting Clays and absolutely love that shotgun so perhaps I need a synthetic rifle to match.

Buy one and put it in a T3 wood take off.

IMO these are fine rifles for the money.
